Attention: La Mesa Subdivision outdoor dog owners. Contrary to what you might believe, your dog is probably one of many who constantly bark when you are not at home. It has become a rare occasion when my family can sit on our deck without hearing at least two or three dogs constantly barking or howling. Please do your neighbor a favor and purchase an anti-bark collar. Leave the collar on 24/7 and your dog will soon acclimate to it. They can be purchased at most sporting goods store for the price of a few bags of dog food.
